 Once Upon a Time...

...in the Swamp.

A 1989 sequel to the Swamp Thing.

Swamp Thing is still living in the swamp, avoiding Arcane's men and helping people when needed to. Anton Arcane himself has managed to regain his humanity after the events of the first film, and is still searching for Swamp Thing in hopes of gaining immortality from his DNA. He has invited his stepdaughter Abigail to his mansion, as he needs her DNA as well for the operation. Ignorant to his motivation, Abigail agrees to visit him in hoping that she'll learn what happened to her late mother. Later on she meets up with Swamp Thing, and a romance develops between the two as he fights it out with Arcane's men and mutants.

The Return has the additional examples:

 Abby: Was it real?

Swamp Thing: As real, as you want it to be.
